  1. Hi AsiaFoundation,
    Great initiative, this is an important approach to built literacy in both business development skills and making use of digital opportunities. I like the idea how it is also used as a strategy to deal with the impact of COVID-19 in particular for young people.
    We would love to learn more of your training approaches.
    Thanks for sharing this innovation.
